One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life (Psalm 27:4)

The State as
State Intrusion into the Sanctity and Privacy of the Family
"We must remove
the children from the crude influence of their families.
We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them"
"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"
"The first thing
that a totalitarian regime tries to do is to get at the children,
to distance them from the subversive, varied influences of their families,
and indoctrinate them in their rulers' view of the world"

become apparent that, in this modern day,
"And if you
dare to tell them, this system isn't right,
and turn the subject; to them we're all the same,
you'll be abandoned, to suffer a bureaucratic fate,
destruction of the family will be their only goal,
"Marx and Engels considered that the nuclear family was one of the main obstacles to Marxism and they therefore, in their revolutionary zeal, counted it as one of the principle enemies to be destroyed or undermined. Since the 1930s the Frankfurt School's Cultural Marxism, and its 'march through the institutions', has been seeking to achieve this end by the Fabian tactic, not of outright revolution, but of wearing us down, bit by bit, in the hope that we will give up and that the family will then fall. This is the real drive, apart from materialism, behind getting women to abandon the home and to deposing the man from his responsible role as head and breadwinner. ... The attempt in Scotland to appoint 'named persons' for every child is one of the latest attempts to achieve this goal by appointing what is really a State Intruder into the family. They want to corrupt our children at school with 'sex education' and 'citizenship' lessons - really promiscuity and class war - and then provide the conditioned child with an anti-family 'champion' in the home! ... All these moves are part and parcel of a horrendous Marxian package. What did the Jesuits say about giving them the child and they would give us the man?... We need to be ever vigilant about all of these related threats. Above all things the child needs protecting from the State!" [Letter to British Church Newspaper, 20 September 2013, p.9].

"God gave children to parents, not to the State, to love, nurture, teach, discipline, and train up into adulthood. It does not take a 'village' or the 'Collective' or State-run 'Care' homes to raise a child; it takes a loving and biological/adoptive/foster family. Please see the article Communism and the Family for the ideology underlying the 'Collective'.
